The payment of civil servants’ remuneration for December may be delayed, the federal government has advised workers to be cautious when spending their November salary.
Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan, the Federation’s Head of Civil Service, issued the advise in a circular yesterday.
Because of repeated trends of budgetary allocation deficits and their attendant effect on salary payment in recent times across several MDAs, she advised workers should make plans for Christmas celebrations from their November salary.
The circular was dated November 25, 2021 and addressed to all staff, Heads of Departments/units and union leaders was titled:”Envisaged Delay in Payment of December 2021 Salary- a Cautionary Advice.”
On behalf of the Head of Service, Dr. S.A. Adegoke signed the circular.
“It’s worth noting that, while issuing this warning is critical, workers should rest assured that the centre is doing all necessary to avoid unnecessary delays.”
